How to build place-based school curriculums using museum collections

4 February 2020 @ 12:30 - 16:30

£5 – £20

GEM Yorkshire and Humberside:

A place based curriculum is about a place, for a place and by a place. It is designed to enhance the learning experiences of our children. There are a number of pieces of research (by the RSA, and individual cities) that indicate that grounding children in their city through place based learning raises their attainment and encourages them to be active citizens. Matched with the engagement we know is possible through arts and culture, we want to put culture at the heart of our place based formal learning curriculum for Leeds.

Jane Avison from Hull Culture and Leisure, and Kate Fellows from Leeds Museums and Galleries have developed successful place based learning curriculums for their cities focused on museum collections, arts and heritage. Come and explore the models, find out what worked and what didn’t and how you can develop something similar in your area.

GEM member: £5; non-members: £20.
